§ 4. Mr. RENDALL
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of his statement that the Treasury had been requested by the Foreign Office to sanction the appointment of a British Consul at St. Vincent, Cape Verde, such sanction has been given; and, if not, why has the Foreign Office not pressed an appointment which it is necessary should be filled at once if British interests are not to be prejudiced?
§ Mr. RENDALL
I put down a question two or three months ago and got a definite answer that the Foreign Office were only awaiting the sanction of the Treasury, and my question is directed as to why the Treasury has not given its sanction.
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
I was not aware of the previous question, but I think that there is a discussion with the Treasury now on the subject.
